I'm going to be going to college not to far away from now and am wondering what the best major I should take. I love to fix computers and stuff like that. I'm not a real big fan of programming (but I could learn, I had a really crappy teacher). Does anyone know what major I should go into? I was thinking about majoring in computer science. Eventually I want to be working on computer security or something similar. So please help me find a major I should major in.

Also I like math a lot.

Computer Science would be a great step to take you may also consider takeing an electrical enginering or even computer enginering.

Hackman, you can also try Computer Information Systems, there's room for what you want to do in there, especially with the business side of computing. However, it's a considered a business major, so you'll have a very heavy emphasis in business along side the computers part. And quite frankly, I don't know if you'd like business classes. If you do (like me), Computer Information Systems is a good way to go. I'm still three years away from my B.S in Business Administration with an Option in Computer Information Systems, so...yeah...work work work...

However, if you do like math a lot, do the Computer Science thing. Just forewarning you the math you'll need is quite high, like above calculus, and going into Linear Algebra & Differential Equations and Analytic Geometry. However, it may be different at different schools, but I just thought what you could be getting into.
